IT Director Resume

Your IT Director Resume needs to demonstrate that you're a business-savvy leader—and not "just" a tech guy.

Of course, every career—and every IT Director resume—is unique. But there are overarching commonalities; the primary strategic objective for the IT Director resume is to demonstrate—clearly and compellingly—that you leverage your deep knowledge and expertise in technology to solve critical, real-world business problems.

That means that the level of technical detail needs to be significantly less than in your earlier career. Details about languages, tools, and technologies just aren't what the hiring authority is looking for in an IT Director resume.

In fact, too much technical detail can hurt the quality of your first impression. This is the exact opposite of what you're seeking—and a far cry from enhancing your chances to get the interview for the next great opportunity.

Because too much technical detail in your IT Director resume is likely to make your career and skills  look lower level than they actually are—and will obscure your critical strategic, communication, and leadership achievements.

But that leaves one obvious question: How much technical detail is too much?

I can't give you a simple, plug-and-play formula. As I said above, every IT Director resume is unique—because every career is unique. Some IT Directors are still (relatively) hands-on. Others have delegated the bulk of the day-to-day technical work to their teams.

There are a wide range of responsibilities in the IT Director role—so every IT Director resume has to be carefully and thoughtfully tailored to most effectively express your career achievements—and target the best next step in your career.

Throughout my career, I've written IT Director resumes for leaders from Fortune 50 companies to startups—and with an extremely wide range of value propositions and career goals.

I leverage my unique, personalized process—and my tremendous depth of experience—to craft an IT Director resume that tells your career story.
